I booked my children on a beginner's lesson and they loved it so much they went back for more! The instructors were absolutely superb and there was a really lovely friendly feel to the whole school. We can't wait to book in for next summer.

The staff were all friendly and helpful, and gave good value for a 2 hour lesson. The lesson covered safety aspects and techniques to get started. Lovely water to surf in. Went on to hire equipment from a different company on a different beach, another day, which was nowhere near as good.

This is a must do attraction for the family. All the instructors are friendly and very encouraging; at the end of the first lesson we were all standing on our boards (even if only for a limit time)! We booked a series of lessons and improved every day with their excellent tutoring. The kids pick it up really quickly and... More

My son was so enthusiastic about his surf school experience that (under my supervision) he wanted to write his own review. From a parents perspective, all staff were friendly, professional and we had absolute confidence that our children were in safe hands in the sea( even on a particularly choppy day).This is the review: The staff were all very friendly...

My children had a great time learning to surf at this school. The school is located on the beach and there are good changing facilities. Plenty of helpful staff at the booking desk and two instructors for the group meant everyone got the help/ guidance they needed. We were very pleased to see the participants carried out fun warm up... More

My boyfriend and I stayed the night at Ayr Holiday Park not far from this beach so decided it would be a perfect opportunity to go bodyboarding whilst staying. We hired both the bodyboard and the wetsuit for only £12 each for 2 hours which was plenty for us as it was quite cold when we went. The guy that... More
